The fourth step could not be more uncomplicated! You will select whether you want a finish option or not. 

At RealCraft, we use Osmo Food-Safe Hardwax Oil on our countertops. Osmo is a plant-based, non-toxic hardwax oil finish that is entirely food-safe, water repellent, extremely tough, and hard-wearing. It is hand-rubbed and provides a breathable, smooth exterior that conditions and protects the wood from liquid spillages and stains.

It is important to note that if you select “no finish,” we cannot warranty the countertop as the wood finish is the layer protection that will prevent your damage and ensure the product’s longevity. Learn more about Osmo Wood Finishes.

Step 5. Additional Options

The fifth and final step is selecting whether you want an Osmo Maintenance Oilor not. For practicality reasons, we offer the three recommend oil options for your countertop’s maintenance over time. 

On this final step, you will also be able to see your countertop’s final price before checking out.
